Another time I called my wife and told her: ‘Queen, I’m sorry, in 13 years of relationship I have never bought you a bouquet like that.’ But I didn’t see anything, not a note or anything. So when I got to my apartment in Paris, When I went to put them in water, I saw a small note that said: ‘To Karl from Yves.’ She did it to get into the topic of seduction and to wish me luck in the series“said the 45-year-old interpreter.
